Locating the position of sensors connected together in a wireless network given only the position of a small number of the sensors and estimates of some of the distances between the sensors is a difficult problem with many modern applications. Within the last few years research in wireless sensor network localization has greatly increased due to the many new applications using wireless sensors, from lightweight sensors used to monitor the environment to ocean-bottom sensors used in geophysical applications. A second reason for this increased interest is our recent ability to efficiently solve these problems using modern semidefinite optimization solvers. We will discuss how semidefinite optimization can be used to solve such problems and possible directions for future work.
